Geneva – April 7, 2024


The management of Leoni Egypt, specializing in manufacturing automotive electrical harnesses, referred 35 workers from factories 2 and 3 in the industrial zone of Badr City for investigation and suspended them on April 4th due to their participation in a strike demanding salary increases.

Workers were expecting an Eid bonus, but many discovered their attendance records were lifted. When they inquired, they were informed of being under investigation without receiving official notification, according to statements by a worker to the media.

The recent strike affected four factories in Badr City and the free zone in Nasr City, lasting for two days before workers decided to end it following a meeting with management representatives the next day. The management promised to consider the salary increase requests and determine their value during April.

The Committee for Justice (CFJ) rejects the arbitrary measures taken by the company’s management against its workers, seemingly related to their labor activity, and calls for their cessation, urging the fulfillment of promises made to the workers.
